The Crambe Abyssinica plant originated in eastern Africa in the Ethiopian Highlands (“Abyssinia”). However, recently it is also cultivated in the Mediterranean region in southern Europe as a spring crop too. Our organically crafted Abyssinian Hair & Body Oil is Cold-Pressed here in Canada from the seeds of the Crambe Abyssinica crop, a multibranched annually-growing oilseed plant in the Brassicaceae family.
Abyssinian Hair & Body Oil is a light and nongreasy natural seed oil that is coveted for its high levels of cuticle-smoothing Erucic Acid (an unsaturated C22 fatty acid). Abyssinian Hair & Body Oil is also rich in Antioxidants and Vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, C and E), proteins and minerals which all promote healthier hair and skin. It is an incredibly stable oil due to the high amount of Omega-9 it contains and is a great emollient for dispersing nutrients into the skin when infused with herbs or essential oils.
Abyssinian Hair & Body Oil hydrates skin without leaving that oily feeling and it balances uneven skin tone and texture. Its fast absorption makes it ideal for oilier skin.
